Camping was fun.

Let’s recap.

Dryer is busted. Strung clothesline this morning. How long does it take clothes to dry in 98% humidity?

AC is out. Again. Has been for weeks. Repairman coming at 3 pm today. Wonder how much THAT will cost.

Kids crawling the walls with summer boredom. Begging for 20 hours now to play with next door neighbor kids. I snapped this morning and told them to just go (they were in their pajamas and hadn’t had breakfast) and don’t bother coming back.

The house is utterly trashed with piles of papers, Happy Meal toys from 5 years ago that Big Sis can’t bear to part with, random smatterings of kids’ art, and dog-and-cat-hair tumbleweeds.

On the plus side, camping was fun! It’s much easier to keep a campsite clean.
